Speck Products FitFolio: Sold Out?

It appears that my review of the FitFolio from Speck Products caused a buying frenzy and the case is now listed as being sold out on their web page:

There’s no need to fear. I spoke to Speck today and they told me that the case is being redesigned for the new HSPA+ version of the Nexus 7.  It seems that the HSPA+ version of the Nexus 7 has some changes in the location of the microphone, headphone jack, and other ports in order to make room for the SIM card slot.  The new case will be a universal case and will accommodate both the Wi-Fi only and the HSPA+ version.  There is no ETA on the arrival of the new case, so you may want to choose that “Notify me” option.
